Useful tips for duvet covers
Duvet covers are the biggest part of a bed and probably the first thing of bed that anyone notices. For long lasting beautiful duvet covers, we need to be careful while using, washing and storing them. These covers are usually made of cotton or polyester fabrics which are easy to wash.
If your duvet covers are made of woven materials, you need to be more careful while washing them. As the machine starts drying them, the covers get stretched and get de-shaped. To avoid this, you can wring those with hands right after washing with the help of a machine.
Luxury duvet covers are made of expensive materials such as silk. This type of materials need extra care as they cannot handle the harsh washing system of machines. To make those covers shine as new ones, they should be dry cleaned only.
Oils and greases should be kept far away from duvet covers. While washing covers in machine, adding 8-10 drops of lavender oil will work as perfume and will last longer on the cover. You can also throw a couple of tennis balls in the machine with the duvet to ensure an even drying.
Cotton duvet covers should be used while storing comforters rather than plastic bags. Because plastic bags cause an odor into duvets which is hard to erase later.
